The most acclaimed Star Trek adventure of all time with an important message. It is the 23rd century, and a mysterious alien probe is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. In their frantic attempt to save mankind, Admiral Kirk and his crew must time travel back to 1986 San Francisco where they find a world of punk, pizza and exact-change buses that are as alien to them as anything they have ever encountered in the far-off reaches of the galaxy. William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy return as Kirk and Spock, along with the entire Star Trek crew.Written by

Outside of North America, the film's title was changed to "The Voyage Home: Star Trek IV." This was done because Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) had done very poorly outside of North America. A special prologue narrated by William Shatner was created in which Kirk recaps the events of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) and Star Trek III. The film ended up grossing only slightly higher than Star Trek III outside of North America. See more »
When Spock is being tested by the computer, some camera angles are shot through the display screens. The text when viewed from the back is still displayed forward, which can be explained as a feature of a holographic alien device from the future rather than a goof. See more »
The ending credits play on top of photos and clips from the film. See more »
The Australian and Germany release summaries mentioned above (they are the same) also included music unique to the prologue. This prologue has not been included on any North American DVD release of the film. See more »
The Voyage Home is the Star Trek film that had the highest box office gross. It captured the imagination of the public who were eager to see Kirk and the crew in present day (1986) San Francisco. Luckily, the film was solid in all aspects and was enjoyed by long-time fans of the series as well. Although the outcome of the film is never in doubt, it never loses the attention of the viewer and entertains throughout. It actually felt fresh and original despite the fact that time travel had been done before (in the TV series) and it was the fourth film in the franchise. Recommended, 8/10.
